A man in the Poconos is facing an animal-cruelty charge for allegedly shooting his pit bull in the head in 2012.
Kevin Brennan was charged Thursday.
The dog, named Ramona, actually survived the shooting.
Authorities say 47-year-old Kevin Brennan of Stroudsburg took the dog to a veterinary hospital and had her put down after firing a shot through the dog's head.
Officials say Brennan told them that the dog had behavioral issues and that he was having financial problems.
